  1. Immerenga scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    This one actually has an amazing blend!

    1990 Bunna puncheon
    2007 Bunna peated
    2000 Glengoyne #1072 butt
    1997 Ardmore Hoghead
    199x Dailuainie
    2007 2 Butts Blended Malt (Tamdhu, Glenturret and glengoyne)

    it´s a real bargain at this price. It´s amazing, yet never sold.

    This one is quite tasty, it´s got a real dirty ashen taste to it. I would´ve given it more than the 46%, yet it´s not too punchy, rather smooth. I like it

      Fresh, sweet and fruity nose.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Surprisingly full body with an even more surprising touch of peat. Pretty good!
    • Finish

      Medium long. Nice but not excellent.

    Also sampled via the BBR tasting.

    This was the only one of the line-up that disappointed me. I found the nose offered hot rubber, which is okay in itself, but not much else. The palate was smokey and a bit spicy, but felt rather weak/bland. I suspect it may have suffered from following the cask strength Glenburgie, but nevertheless this one's not for me.

  5. HokkaidoUni scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    Tasted at the Berry Bros and Rudd Whiskybase online virtual tasting, led by the excellent spirits master and storyteller Doug McIvor who bottled them.

    A great blend, even if I tend to go for single malts
    • Nose
      80 80
      For me the nose was very reserved, mineral and salty, opening to a little sour fruits and wood smoke, with some flint after adding water. I ascribe the salty to the Bunnahabhain that BBR put in here.
    • Taste
      83 83
      The blend has both ex-bourbon and ex-sherry. Tobacco and some sweet dried fruits open up after water addition to an old leather arm chair, not in a library, rather in your granddad's den or library.
    • Finish
      83 83
      A nice open finish, lingers on the tobacco and leather.

  7. Dre73 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Very surprising whisky, with some subtle touch of peat, and some fruitiness. Very smooth mouthfeel without being pale of thin. Nice one.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Fruity, oily, with a slight peaty note. full nose, more orange now.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Very smooth and soft, a touch of sal ammoniac, licorice, only a little tingling mouthfeel. Some tobacco, then more fruitiness arrives. Oranges, and some chocolate. Creamy structure.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Still very smooth, very soft, some licorice, creamy again. Again some fruits, orange, and later on tobacco remains for quite some time.
